Actually located in Fajazinha, not Lajes. We went for lunch and dinner, both were authentic and delicious. The owner personally greeted us both times and had a wealth of knowledge when we peppered him with questions about the food. A good wine selection also.

É o que se chama uma verdadeira experiência típica! A comida é caseira, o ambiente familiar, a ementa tradicional, e a decoração evocativa de uma pequena casa típica de outros tempo! A isto temos que somar necessariamente a simpatia e o fantástico pôr do sol...que lhe dá o nome. Certamente voltarei. This is what you call a truly traditional experience! The food is really homemade, a familial environment, traditional menu and a decor evocative of a traditional small home from another time! To this we meet to add-up the niceness of the staff and owner and the fantastic sunset that names the place. I will certainly be back.More

Good lunch options for a group of vegetarians, which is a rare find in the Azores, and a friendly who was super friendly and welcoming. The peanut ice cream was so good we came back the next day just for that, and looked so distraught...when we finished it that the owner gave us some extra at no cost :)More

A delightful traditional azorean restaurant with a wonderful spot by the sea. Limited opening hours so check before you set off that it is open. The menu is fresh and cooked to order. My partner had a lovely fillet of fish and I opted for...the traditional Marcelo with sweet potatoes. Well priced Azorean wines accompanied our meal. Highly recommend.More

Our first meal in Azores! And what a great meal! For starters we had “fatias douradas de milho” with jam and cheese, marvellous! The mean meal was “espetadas de camarão” and “vitela assada”, so so soooooo good. The desert was “mousse de maracujá” also fantastic....It is surely a place to visit again and to not miss in a trip to Ilha das Flores.More

We had such a great meal and the sunset is fabulous. Book a table is mandatory during August and this was ghe last and best place we had a meal in Flores island. It’s a typical restaurant with typical food, no pretentious to be more...than just real good homemade food. we chose several dishes, from starters to main courses so we could try a little of everything and the food was very well prepared. Tasted as if we cooked at home. The location it’s awesome with the right sunset 🌅 a d the service was really good.More

We ordered lapas, fish soup and grilled fish (Boca negra). Everything was just average lacking a lot of flavour. Until now we have been astonished with how good the food in Flores is and this was an exception and we were disappointed. Also a bit...pricedMore
